Some of the officers from my local TU chapter asked if I would be interested in donating a rod for a fund raising auction.


I agreed to do it and I went over some rod details with them.


It is a 7ft 6in; 2pc / 2tip rod for a 5/6 line. While casting, I liked a 6wt line up close and a 5wt line for a little distance.


The snake guides are Snake Brand Guides. The agate stripping guide is from Joe Arguello.

The ferrules, strap & loop hook keeper, and hex winding check are nickel silver.


The reel seat is a Lemke LC1 (downlocking) from Ron at Soutwest Customs.

The reel seat insert is from a piece of buckeye burl.


The rod is wrapped in fine silk and finished with spar varnish.











The auction is in a couple weeks. I hope someone likes it well enough to bid high on it.

Very nice Brian, looks like an excellent build. Should command some really decent bids in my opinion

Marriage is like a deck of cards- in the beginning, all you need is two hearts and a diamond.  In the end, you wish you had a club and a spade.
